by the armed services committee on tuesday on a party-line vote. 14-11. came to the floor yesterday and harry reid filed a motion yesterday to limit debate and force a vote on the nomination which is expected to happen on friday. earlier today, however, the democratic leader accused republicans of mounting a full-scale filibuster of chuck hagel. the nevada senator saying it was, quote, shocking and tragic republicans would block the haguele assassination. that is the subject -- hagel nomination. that is the subject of much debate this afternoon. you can follow it on c-span2 and across the c-span networks today, we are covering president obama who is speaking this afternoon at this hour and we'll take you live to the house floor and the president speaking in decatur, georgia. d ask for its consideration. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report theres. rution. the clerk: house calendar number four, resolved that upon adoption of this resolution, it shall be in order to consider in the house the bill h. reform 273, to eliminate the 2013 statutory payment adjustment for federal employees.
rally instead of traveling a mile and a half and sitting down to harry reid and coming up with a plan to, to replace these cuts with smarter reforms and smarter approaches. over the last 10 months, the republicans have been working and we have passed two bills to replace these cuts. we need the president to stop campaigning for higher taxes and come back to washington d.c. and the lead. dodge the president is more interested in holding a campaign rally and urging the senate democrats to actually pass the plan. we know there are smarter ways to cut spending and continued to grow our economy. that is why republicans have acted to replace the sequester with what we would argue are smarter cuts. the president says we have to have another tax increase to avoid the sequestered. you got your tax increase. it is time to cut spending in washington. instead of using our military men and women as campaign props, begin to address our problems. the house has acted twice and we should not have to act a third time before the senate begins to do their work. >> we heard the president said last week that
with harry reid and urge the senate democrats to take action. the president says this is a bad idea, but yet he's not put forward an alternative idea. the republicans in the house have twice taken action, twice passed legislation. the first time 300 days ago. what we need is for the president to stop using this as an excuse to raise taxes and turn it into an opportunity to start saving taxpayer dollars, start spending money more wisely. the american people, moms, dads, seniors, college students, children, they shouldn't be forced to lose their jobs or lose the opportunities that this country has to offer. it's time to get serious about the spending, and we need the president to lead and get off the campaign trail. >> a proud kansan by the name of william allen white once said something to the effect that the truth will always come out as the facts are fairly and honestly on display. so let's review the facts. the facts are the sequester was the president's idea. it's a fact the house has twice passed legislation to replace the sequester with smarter cuts and reforms. it's a fact that the sen
-bowles commission, nominated by the majority leader, harry reid and i served with 17 others, six by the president, and six from each the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, equally divided, and we considered the deficit crisis facing america, and it's serious. we borrow 40 cents for every dollar we spend. that's unsustainable. no family could continue with that kind of a regimen, no could could and certainly no nation can. so we have to have deficit reduction. but we need to do it thoughtfully. first, we don't want to do it too quickly. i met with a group downstairs from illinois, they are civic and business leaders from the quad cities area in western illinois. and we talked about the fact that we are in an economic recovery but a slow one, and one that is taking hold but slowly. and we need to take care that whatever we do doesn't jeopardize economic recovery. right now, downtown the federal reserve board is trying to keep the economic recovery moving forward and jobs created, and the way they're doing that is keeping interest rates low so it's cheaper to borrow what's needed for a
not like it any more than anybody else. when the president and harry reid told me they would work with us to get an outcome of the supercommittee, i felt confident we could get an outcome. unfortunately, we did not. but mr. boehner mcculloch the state -- >> mr. brunner, you said you have worked to get an agreement. are you concerned about the optics of not even doing that and the house being out? >> i will be here tomorrow. i will go down to the white house and accept the president's invitation to me. we have made our cards on the table. we have shown that we can pass a bill to replace the sequester. that is why we did it twice. it is time for the senate act. >> [indiscernible] there is a lot of buying going on macarena, but few people have blamed the supercommittee. those were the ones who were charged. do they not share blame and if they do, why do we not hear from there? >> i do not blame the supercommittee members or their leaders who worked with the members of the supercommittee. it is unfortunate they did not come to an outcome. there were an awful lot of others influencing the supe
harry reid, eric cantor there. and members of congress. these are coveted seats. just saying before the president was introduced here, there has been all this advanced notice that the president will be sort of keeping with his confident, even arguably aggressive tone that he has taken since his reelection. the quote that stood out for me from politico this week, it was assigned to a person close to the drafting of the speech. >> right. >> said the president's approach to the republican party in this speech would be borrowed from the 2500-year-old chinese book philosophy "the art of war." and the quote was "build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across." . >> i like the quote. and i think that would be probably a good strategy for the president. i mean, i would hope that we don't see a lot of partisan bickering, but i hope he is aggressive in terms of the proposals that he is going to lay out. this being his last term, most people say 18 months and then you start looking lame duck. so very important speech as to what his presidency and his legacy is going to mean. and i think
and propose legislation, but harry reid hasn't even passed a budget. >> zerlina i want to bring this up too. a graphic in january the unemployment rate ticked up up to 7.9%. how long is it going to take for americans really to start feeling fed up with all of this especially when they are starting to see less money in their paychecks because of this payroll tax. >> that is a real concern, right? so americans are continuing to feel the pain of the economic recovery being very slow. the bottom line is the bureau of economic analysis said the shrinking economy is a cause by a reduction in government spending. so the president is drying to say look we have to get stimulus into the economy. we need to get everyone back to work. that is caused by more spending not less spending. >> the democrats have proposed you cannot spend your way into prosperity. nor you can't tax people into prosperity. what you need to do is let the free markets take control. and basically in washington, d.c., we have bigger government. the president appointed 32 czars. what are those czars doing? >> czars is just a shorte
a homicide. >> a major new development featuring a harris teter is going up at one of bethesda's busiest intersections. it will be located on the corner of wisconsin and wood monte avenue. that's near the walter reid national medical center. in addition to the supermarket, there will be apartments along with underground parking. this project is scheduled to open in the spring of 2015. >>> coming up, move over, g.i. joe, there's a new action figure in town and he's packing heat. what's this about? >> also ahead, breaking the stigma of mental illness. we'll hear one local family's astonishing tale. they are more likely to : we have a developing story out of chicago where sources say former congressman, jesse jackson jr. has admitted to violating campaign finance lawings. jackson has reportedly signed papers in a plea deal where he admits using political contributions to buy a $40,000rolex watch, travel expenses for a friend and furniture for his home in washington. the son of civil rights leader, jesse jackson, resigned from congress last year siting health concerns. under the terms of th
york times." he begins with these words. on july 26, 2011, jack lew went to harry read's budget for a session. according to bob woodward's book, they came up with a trigger idea to force a budget deal. what's the idea, reid asked? sequestration, lew said. reid folded himself over with his head between his knees as if he was going to throw up. here's the question. if this is such a horrible idea, sequestration or these forced budget cuts, why did the white house come up with this idea to begin with? >> well, as you remember, wolf, in the summer of 2011, we were facing a situation where the nation was about to default for the first time in its history because republicans were refusing to agree to a balanced approach to a deficit reduction. both sides were looking for a way to craft a deal that would avoid default and a trigger mechanism. sequestration, which is a word that most americans have never heard before, is simply a way of crafting policy that was so onerous that would cause cuts that nobody liked, republicans or democrats, and because of that they would compel the prospec
, it was the white house. it was obama and neighbors went to the democratic leader and harry reid and said this is the solution. >> sean: there you have it the plan that the president is calling not smart, not fair, was actually his solution to quote, saving the economy. again, that's not what we heard today at the white house, what we heard was our commander campaigner in chief reverting back into election mode and blaming republicans and using pathetic scare tactics to smear the opposition. sound familiar? you've heard the fear mongering, what i'm about to play is only described as obama's mayen apocalypse, have you questioning whether or not the sun will rise next friday if in fact the sequester takes hold. here is more of the fear mongering and we hanitized this comment a little bit. >> now, congress allows this meat cleaver approach to take place, it will jeopardize our military readiness. >> what kind of training, son. >> training sir. >> it will eviscerate job training investments and training. >> i'm registered for this class. >> what class. >> this is u.s. history right there. >>
is wrong with harry reid that he could not get along with a house and set up a budget for them so you could go to congress and have a budget? i cannot believe after four years there has not been one. guest: it is really surprising. congressman jim cooper wrote a piece of legislation, no budget, no pay. it required the congress to pass a budget resolution. the set and house agreed on it and did the appropriation bills on time. it the senate did not do that, they would have to give up their pay until the work got done it. -- if the that it did not do that, they would have to give up their pay until the work got done. i was a sponsor of that bill. within minutes of having that legislation passed, harry reid came to the podium and said this year the senate will pass a budget. it is a critical step forward. at this point we will be able to see what a separate report -- priorities are, and hopefully we will be able to pull those documents together and have this country work on a budget for work, work with inside the budget framework so we can control the rampant growth of government. >host: an in
this put him at odds with senator harry reid, for instance, who needs to keep a majority, or would like to keep a majority in the senate, and as dana mentions, he's got some senators in reagan -- i'm sorry, reagan, whoa, in mitt romney won states that could lose on votes on immigration, on gun control. are they at odds? >> i don't know if he's at odds with senator reid, but senator reid's first statement on the assault weapons ban is he couldn't bring it up in the senate because he has five or six red state democrats that are up for re-election in 2014, and it's a very delicate a very delicate issue. the president has been bold in his state of the union address and i think if he focused on what was doable rather than sort of this wish list, he could get a lot done. but what we find here in washington, both parties, is that they want to overplay their hands and go for what i want rather than what i can do. >> well, exactly. isn't there some thought that when you look at things like minimum wage. when you look at some of the other things on the president's agenda, those look more like pol
, " press here for a message from senator king." [laughter] the bad news is, it was in harry reid's handwriting. [laughter] listen, the message is really simple. we have got to start talking to each other, solving problems, we have got to get rid of the ideology and you have got to be fired up to make it happen. the forces of division are fired up. the forces that want to pull us apart and put us into categories are fired up. there has to be support for people who want to solve problems, who want to tell the truth, who want to work a five- day week, who want to do the things that we need to do to get this country going. it is what is on the minds of the public. i was the only candidate in the country where people had a real choice. if you stop and think about it, your choices are determined by the parties by large. in maine, people had a third choice. my favorite comment from the whole state was that people came up to me and said all my life, i wanted a chance to vote for none of the above. and you are it. [laughter] [applause] but the point is, people are more interested in solvi
